These methods are used by the LEADTOOLS Document Web Service to allow creating or manipulating existing documents from JavaScript. When the JavaScript has finished with the LEADDocument object, it will call CreateDocumentDescriptor to obtain a simple JSON object that describes the document and send it to the server. The server will then call UpdateFromDocumentDescriptor or DocumentFactory.Create to update an existing or creata a new LEADDocument object.
